Samuel Y. Jarman, Superintendent

Welcome to Alpine School District! I truly believe we are the best school district in the nation. Students, parents, community members and staff—together, we are Alpine School District! We care deeply about each other and student achievement. As your superintendent, I look forward to serving with you as we continue to shape communities and build futures. There is cause for celebration as we reflect on the achievements of the previous year. Did you know that our graduation rate is above 92 percent, a steady increase over the past decade and one of the highest in Utah? We should view this as a thirteen-year, K-12 accomplishment. The positive school morale and excitement for learning that we see in our schools today exists because of our dedication to student learning through high-performing teacher teams. The challenge for us is to stay focused on our mission, vision, values and goals. Alpine School District will always be committed to continuous improvement through daily interactions with students, colleagues and parents. Let’s continue to work together towards even greater achievements. Please join with us and get involved as much as you can to help students achieve. We need you!
